The name, Jeju Noodle Bar, comes from the island located off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula. Jeju Island is well known for naturally farmed pork and abundant fresh seafood. Jeju, in Korean, also has a few different definitions such as “skill, talent, ability”.

The close Korean equivalent of the Japanese Ramen, Ramyun is a comfort dish enjoyed by Koreans of all social class and ages. At Jeju Noodle Bar ​our main focus is to allow diners to experience and savor the distinct Korean flavor by using different techniques & ingredients from chef Douglas’s experiences.

Outstanding! There was not a single misstep in the entire evening. Each and every dish was prepared and presented absolutely perfectly. The staff was kind, attentive, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable. Cannot recommend this place enough.

We called ahead to make sure the restaurant had gluten free options. They said they did. This was their version of GF. For the noodles, they substituted rice for noodles, and the raw ingredients on the side. The raw red meat never cooked when I put it in the bowl. I basically ate a bowl of insanely rich broth with slices of raw meat and a few vegetables. It was horrible. They were out of the GF egg option, which would have saved my stomach a little bit. The chef clearly has never tasted his 'gluten free' version, or he would not have served it.

Got the price fixe

Toro excellent
Chicken wings and mushroom truffle very good
Ribeye Ssam and the fish coop ramyun was ok
Ice cream dessert was fine

Ironically, the noodles were not the strength but the prices are good and if you do ala crate and do the toro chicken wings and mushroom you will be good.

Food was amazing that's not a question. They seemed to be overwhelmed when all the reservations started coming in. So, there was a big delay between our appetizer and when we actually got our ramyun.

This is my first restaurant review ever. The reception was extremely rude, even with the reservation still had to wait for 20 min. the 2 different noodles we had were both very salty(one with truffle the other one with Wagyu beef) the only thing that was good was toro Ssam bab. Cucumber kimchi was nothing special.
I had high expectations based on all the good reviews. I felt bad I had recommanded this restaurant to my friend. She didn’t enjoy it either. Very disappointed. Service was just ok. Wouldn’t recommend this restaurant at all. Wouldn’t come back here either.

Jeju Noodle was fantastic ! I’ve been here three times already. Each time I walk away with full belly and warm heart. Every dish is excitingly new, yet it’s a lovely nod to korean soul food ingredients. I loved every bite of it. Service is also top notch, and their drink selection is just great.

So glad that I finally got around to try this Korean ramyun/noodle joint. JeJu made 1 Michelin star list this year in 2019, and food wise I think they really deserved it.
Our reservation was at 7pm for 4 ppl, 3 of us got there about 15 mins early, and they were nice to seat us anyway.
For starter, we ordered JeJu fried chicken wings, squid & nuts, and Toro ssam bap(highly recommend). On the noodles, we tried the So ramyun (beef) and Gochu ramyun (pork belly). EVERYTHING was tasty, squid and chicken was tender, noodle soup was very flavorful but not too salty or too overwhelming. Since this is Korean style noodle, so do not expect the same texture as Japanese reman.
All in all, hands down their food is definitely one of the better places I've had tried in NYC. Will I come back again? Absolutely!

Food was good but we waited 30 mins for appetizers, and another 30 mins for ramen. Also the noise level was very very loud

Their website stated Korean ramyun instead of the popular Japanese ramen so I was excited for my visit but after my meal, I was a bit disappointed because it tasted just like a Japanese ramen (yes, there is quite a difference between the two). In my opinion, it wasn't worth the drive to the city because there are a lot of restaurants closer to me that tastes the same if not, better.

Loved the spin on korean cuisine at Jeju Noodle Bar although I wouldn't necessarily call it innovative. The quality of each dish on the tasting menu was very high and each course was delicious. However, the service and ambiance of the restaurant was only sub-par. I appreciated that folks from the kitchen were bringing their dishes directly to the diners however there was a lot of plate stacking and confusion around service. At one point we were served a ramen dish that we were about to dive into only to have it taken away and brought to another table.

Although I would recommend Jeju for the food, I would not come back a second time because of the poor service.

This place is so good! Never had Korean ramen before and found myself coming here twice in one week. Love their take on the Japanese noodles and also love that they have pork buns for appetizer. I highly recommend their sparkling Riesling - I’ve never had anything quite like it. Light, cool, and refreshing - it went so well with the savory ramen.

The best Korean ramyun I’ve ever tasted. Rich broth, right amount of spices and the pork belly is crisp and tasty, the noodle is cooked to perfection. Ssam pork buns are to die for! Will definitely go back again:)
